Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter

I'am having trouble with virtual wifi miniport adapter. I want to take advantage of this new feature in windows 7 so i've downloaded connectify and virtual router to give it a try and it really works great and acts like a real hardware. But i discovered something wrong that everytime i change my mac address in the device manager the microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter is being disabled and cannot function or start and also i cannot use my connectify and virtual router with it, but when i put my real mac address back its functioning properly again. Please help i need a solution for this kind of problem i often change my mac address for security and browsing reason specially in public.

Problem With Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter Driver

Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter has a problem with driver. Reinstall driver, not fixed. Windows 7 home premium 64. New acer 5532 trying to connect to a wireless hp 1022nw. Wireless internet was set up without a hitch. Other computers connect are xp and no problem exists. Wondering if this is really a driver issue or compatibility / hardware issue. One of the automatic responses also stated the driver was reinstalled and did not fix the issue. Windows update stated to never install drivers (?) And issue was not present. A secondary and possible related problem stated in trouble shoot was "problem with pnp devices, detected.

Virtual Wifi Miniport Adaptor Driver Problem

I have a new packard bell easynote tj61 with in-built webcam, which worked for a while, and then came this error. When i turn on the laptop and it boots up with windows7, i get an error window stating "please turn on the camera". When i close this window and try to turn on the webcam, the error message just re-appears. I have taken a look at my device manager and found the little yellow triangle with explanation mark next to one of the network adaptors, specifically, the 'microsoft virtual wifi miniport adaptor'. I have clicked on this tried to install the driver but it reckons i have the correct driver installed. However it also tells me the "device is not working properly because windows cannot load the drivers required for this device (code31)"

The driver file details are c:windowssystem32driversvwifimp.sys
And driver version is 6. 1. 7600. 16385.

Hope this is enough info for anyone to be able to help. I am assuming the webcam and driver issue are co-related.

Microsoft Virtual Wireless Adapter

I have a dell vostro 1400 notebook with a broadcom wlan 1390 installed. Recently, i have upgraded the wlan driver to version 5. 60. 18 using the upgrade provided by dell bearing id no r242438. After the upgrade, i have confronted the following problem. The name of the adapter has changed in programs like stopcut and netcut. In other words, when i try to access the drop list to choose the name of my network adapter, i find the name of my ethernet adapter mentioned correctly, microsoft virtual adapter mentioned correctly, while my wireless adapter is labeled as microsoft instead of dwlan 1390 as it used to display before.

The adapter is displayed with its right label (dwlan 1390) in the device manager and in the adapters list in the network connections window. However, whenever i use a third party application to access my adapters list, the label i got for my wireless adapter is microsoft and not dwlan 1390. I rolled back to my old driver and i get the same result.

Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter Has A Driver Problem

Message 1. "Device driver software was not successfully installed" - x failed message 2. "Troubleshooting has completed" - "microsoft teredo tunneling adapter has a driver problem". My first time here. Perhaps i can learn something. Well, message 1. -  I got when i attempted to update the driver for the same adapter. I then got message 2 after attempting to troubleshoot the problem. I initially had issues with the netgear infamous adapter wg111v2, which i couldn't get to work, uninstall or work or install.

Crazy. Well i reinstalled win7, plugged it in, and the software downloaded immediately and the adapter seemed to be working fine (for the first time since win7 installation), based on the bottom right hand icon's confirmation. Until i removed the network cable. Now it doesn't work despite apparent software confirmation.

No browser loads, only with a cable. My search online seems to suggest that it is down to this tunneling adapter. It seems to be at fault. I know for sure that it's not the router as i have wifi on my hd2 from it, and win7 tells me that the adapter is working. So my question is does win7 just not accept netgear's adapter or is it the teredo tunneling adapter's fault. Oh my router is dg834gv3.

Update Disabling Intel Wifi Adapter

I recently purchased a vaio laptop for the widi capabilities. Out of the box it worked as advertised, but after a round of various updates from microsoft and sony, the widi becomes disabled. The message that appears is: my intel wifi technology disabled, please restart your computer. Another message that appears is: my intel wifi technology: adapter not found. I've poured over all the vendor community postings (intel, netgear, sony) regarding this issue but no one seems to have come up with a solution.

The only method for recovery is to do a complete system restore which puts everything back to factory settings. Once i do that, it works for a little bit until the updates download again. I've tried turning off the auto updates and i've ensured that all the latest drivers were installed (even after doing a complete system restore) but nothing seems to prevent the adapter from becoming disabled. I don't have any issues with the wifi, only the widi. This issue seems to be affecting all brands with widi capabilities. I'm not sure if it's affecting only intel i5s or both i5s and i7s. Any one have any other suggestions?

Atheros 5007 Wifi Driver

I need a driver that will work on windows 7 x64. I tried all the ones on google. Even tried the toshiba driver for 2010. The xp driver nor the toshiba win 7 driver do not install, no matter what. I have the vista . Inf but it's not an exe. If someone knows where to put the inf files i can do it. This thing has been a pain in the butt since i bought it. I used it on vista, with a major headache to get it working. Why is atheros so difficult? Forcing us to use european drivers.

I had a broadcom wifi pci card & that installed no problem. I needed to take it out for my mom to use, but that left me with no wireless option now. I mean i can just boot to my xp drive but then you don't have the direct x 11 & the video card isn't as awesome because it wasn't made for xp. I may be wrong on the "ag", the print wore off & i think that's what it was.

Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter Problem

I'm running a 3 month old
Acer ax1301-b9082 with win7 home premium 64-bit

I went into my devices and printers to make sure that the new printer i set up was not showing any issues. It was fine. However, i did notice that my tower had an issue ! So i clicked on it and troubleshooted it and it came back with. There is a problem with your microsoft teredo tunneling adapter.

So, i tried to retrieve a driver from the backups i made the day i bought the computer, that didn't work. The computer is already set to look for additional driver info online, that didn't work and it didn't find any driver fix. I went back into my device manager looking for the problem and found the ! Issue, clicked on the driver tab and tried to update the driver but it came back with a return that my driver was up to date and working fine. Which obviously isn't the case.

I did several searches for the microsoft tunneling adapter but didn't yield any results, let alone a driver i could find. The path to find the actual problem is

Computer>windows>system32>drivers>tunnel.sys

Anyone have any clue how i can find a fix for this issue?

Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter Not Working

I read the thread regarding microsoft teredo tunneling adapter not working. I too have that problem and it isn't resolved. I noticed that many of you seem to have zonealarm which i also have. Check to see if the following file is on your pc: c:program files (x86)one labsone alarmdiagnosticsosrbang.exe. This file is a crash on demand program and should be deleted immediately. I have two pcs with zone alarm and it was on both (one windows 7 and one xp). I previously had (at separate times) avg antivirus, eset antivirus, and ca antivirus and none of these found the file. I now have vipre antivirus and it blocked the file and eliminated it.

I have installed microsoft virtual pc on my win7 machine with the hope of playing project igi. However, when i launch igi within the virtual xp machine, it gives me a d3d error message and the game will not launch.

I get the following error "the nvidia driver setup could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware" is this a driver problem or something else? Can anybody help me? I'm dying to play my old time favorite igi

Rt73 Driver Problem With Adapter

I have a dynex wgusb wireless card. It has never given me a problem before except when windows automatically gave me an ralink rt73 driver. After the driver i couldn't connect to the internet at all, my wireless card wasn't turning on, searching for signal or anything. After i rolled back my drivers to the dynex usb drivers i get internet but my router resets every 8 hours. After the router resets, my computer doesn't reconnect and i have to manually reconnect it but it doesn't connect like it should, i have to troubleshoot every time for it to connect with a persistent "problem with wireless adapter or access point" notification. I want to know how to either get the newer drivers to work, or fix the drivers i have now to never have to troubleshoot to connect.

Graphics Adapter Driver For Gateway 7330gz

My mom recently had a virus on her gateway 7330gz laptop and couldn't find her gateway os cd, so we bought and installed windows 7 professional 32bit. The installation went without a hitch, installed all the drivers, had to get older windows xp audio drivers as explained in this thread but other than that, not bad at all and runs pretty smooth. The only problem is, windows 7 installed the default graphics adapter driver and i can't find a real driver for my video adapter. I'm able to run at my laptop's native resolution, but there is no video hardware acceleration or anything like that, so even playing spider solitaire is near impossible and viewing youtube videos at fullscreen results in laggy viewing.

I've run intel's driver finder program and it says that i have a driver installed for it but the best one isn't supported by windows 7. And gateway's drivers for the 7330gz are from 2004 and are only for xp. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me, or if anyone knows of a workaround or a current driver that would support my system.

Linksys Wmp300n Wireless Adapter Driver Issue

Windows overwriting linksys wmp300n wireless adapter driver with broadcom 802. 11n network adapter driver. After installing drivers for a linksys wmp300n pci wireless adapter, windows is automatically overwriting it with newer broadcom 802. 11n network adapter drivers (that cause it to not work). How can i install the appropriate drivers and prevent windows from changing them?

I tried using gpedit. Msc to prevent automatic installation of drivers, but then that prevented me from installing the real drivers as well. Can i make a policy that would just prevent the broadcom driver from installing?
